Presbyopia

Presbyopia is the loss of focusing ability that occurs naturally with age. In younger people, the lens is very flexible and the eye has a wide range of focus from far distance to close up. As you get older, the lens slowly loses its flexibility leading to a gradual decline in ability to focus on near objects.
Presbyopia is not a disease but a normal and expected change which sooner or later affects everyone, whether you already wear spectacles or contact lenses or not. Around the age of 40-45, you will begin to notice that you are holding the newspaper further away or need more light to read small print. There is no advantage in delaying using reading glasses, or changing to bifocals or varifocals. They will not make the eyes lazy!
We will advise you on the best form of vision correction to suit your individual lifestyle and occupation.
